D. Salinger's world-famous novel of disaffected youth. Holden Caulfield is a seventeen- year-old dropout who has just been kicked out of his fourth school. Navigating his way through the challenges of growing up, Holden dissects the 'phony' aspects of society, and the 'phonies' themselves: the headmaster whose affability depends on the wealth of the parents, his roommate who scores with girls using sickly-sweet affection. Written with the clarity of a boy leaving childhood behind, "The Catcher in the Rye" explores the world with disarming frankness and a warm, affecting charisma which has made this novel a universally loved classic of twentieth-century literature. J. D. Salinger was born in 1919 and died in January 2010. He grew up in New York City, and wrote short stories from an early age, but his breakthrough came in 1948 with the publication in The New Yorker of "A Perfect Day for Bananafish". "The Catcher in the Rye" was his first and only novel, published in 1951. It remains one of the most translated, taught and reprinted texts, and has sold some 65 million copies. His other works include the novellas "Franny and Zooey", "For Esme with Love and Squalor", and "Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters, published with Seymour - An Introduction".Hide synopsis

I'm always amazed how Christians find this book so offensive. Ironically, their objections are precisely why I think it is great. Holden Caulfield is morally bankrupt. But rather than suppress this sort of literature, I think it's all the more important to put and keep it in circulation. There are ...
The action takes place over a short period of time and is full of repeats of stupid kid stuff but
remarkably hip for a boy so young. It was a neat
read and I enjoyed it this second time around. There was much more to it than I recalled.
As a Skeptic, I believe Messaniac does not have a relationship with reality. Her criticism is that Holden lacks a spiritual relationship with god.
She describes the protagonist as, "morally bankrupt, enslaved to stupid and perverse interests, unable to feel any pure love for anyone else, not ...
Zakkyzak-I read it in high school and again when I was about 35 and I agree with you completely. I am a writer and a total bibliophile and this is one of those cases when people don't understand something so they say it's brilliant because they don't want anyone to think they "don't "get it." It's ...
If The Catcher in the Rye, To Kill a Mockingbird, 1984, and The Great Gatsby were all tossed into a literary cage-fighting match together, which book would emerge as the victor? To make this interesting, let's include The Hunger Games, which isn't a literarly classic like the others but IS about ...
